Vets reattach cat’s face

Boston animal surgeons said a cat is expected to make a full recovery after emergency surgery to reattach part of its face.

The veterinarians said the Winthrop, Mass., owner of 4-year-old cat Edgar brought the feline to the animal hospital after finding him with half of his facial skin hanging off, dbTechno reported Wednesday.

The owner said Edgar had been missing for three days before she found him injured.

The animal doctors said Edgar's skin was successfully reattached without any nerve damage and the cat is expected to make a full recovery.
